Your vehicle’s timing belt controls the opening and closing of the valves of your engine at precise timing intervals. For most makes of cars and trucks, the timing belt should replaced every 90,000-150,000 miles (depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations). If the timing belt is faulty or damaged, it can cause serious and expensive damage to the engine.
